At this point I have looked at all the feminine desks available on the internet in the history of time! I am struggling with finding a pretty desk that speaks to me for our home office refresh! A lot of pretty desks are smaller, more delicate, and just look too small for our space. Big desks in general fall on the dark and masculine side.
Feminine Desks For Our Home Office
I don’t necessarily want an office full of pink hues. But I don’t want the room looking too dark and heavy!
The room already has navy grasscloth up on the walls. (Read about my experience installing the grasscloth wallpaper here, or take a peek at this room as our dining room here!) The grasscloth is pretty dark, so I am bringing a lot of white into the room.
This is the look I am going for…

The desk in my mood board is this two sided partners desk. Since I am floating my desk in the room, I loved that this looked good from both sides. Jose can work too if he pulls up a chair (one day when the kids are all magically busy). This desk is LARGE so we could easily share the desk.

11 Home Offices That Use Feminine Desks
Below are 11 beautiful homes offices. Direct links for the items in each office are included.
This home office is giving me major inspiration! This room uses a desk that could go industrial but still soft and feminine… a bit of both. The wall of built ins keeps the navy from feeling overpowering. Shop this desk here:
Here is the same desk again! What a lovely set up. Shop a knock off version of this desk here: *currently out of stock but it looks like it is coming back
With built ins like these you don’t need anything but his and hers chairs and a rug. Don’t you love those stunning velvet chairs? See the velvet chairs here:
I also like how Monika put a pinboard in the corner of her office, here:
This pin board is from minted. They actually create some of the most beautiful custom pin boards in all kinds of sizes! Shop pinboard here:
When I think of feminine desks, this is what comes to mind. This is the most beautiful desk, and it is rarely in stock because it is so popular! The raw wood and the thick top is so, so beautiful! I love that she combined it with the navy velvet chair. Want to see this same desk used in two other beautiful home offices?
I love the industrial features in offices when mixed with feminine desks.
This is hands down my favorite desk. It has been around for years, but it is still hard to get – often out of stock or backordered. See this beautiful desk here:

This home office is what made me want to hang two pendants instead of one over the desk, for symmetry.
With the desk floating in the room you don’t need much else in the room. It appears she is using a table as a desk too – a great way to reuse a piece you already have! Shop these lights and almost identical black chairs here:
I am crazy about this whole entire set up and that gray and brass feminine desk! So lovely. Shop this room here:
THIS Anthropologie desk is so good. I love everything about this space! See this desk here:
Have you SEEN this desk? It is so popular it can’t ever stay in stock. It is pretty, with clean lines and a nice white top.
This is a probably one of the best price points for a pretty white desk that is such a good size. This is called the Sugar Paper desk and is sold at Target/Overstock but is currently sold out. Shop other similar white and brass desks here:

Sarah from Life on Virginia Street uses two smaller desks that her and her husband share. I love how cozy she made the room. These desks are super affordable and cute. But if you are looking for a big desk like I am, two put together would work well! Shop This Affordable Look:
An Easy Formula For Putting Together a Home Office
If you are struggling on how to decorate your office, here is an easy formula that many of the offices I shared use:
- Don’t put the desk against a wall (unless you have a really good reason to – like a big picture window with a great view!)
- Use a stylish desk, combine in with a pretty chair, and bring both pieces into the middle of the room. This is now the focal point.
- Add lighting and a colorful pillow for your chair.
- Directly behind the desk put either: two bookshelves or a large piece of art on the wall. (Or if there is a window centered behind your desk, that works instead). That’s it! You’re set! The walls don’t necessarily all have to be filled with art or stuff- the eyes are drawn to the desk in the center of the room.
